Do it! ;)
Love the pic where "carbon-job" in the frame really comes to display. Looks awesome. On your concideration about new wheels, then I think that those you've got now are a bit to deep. 45-50 mm would be perfect. And yes UD carbon would suit it better. But the frame is still a killer :)

I am still considering what to do.... put the stickers on the front wheel and try to sell them or change the look of the rims... ;)

I agree about the height of the wheels, as already wrote in my 1st post. Reynolds 46 mm or Shimano 50 mm, both UD carbon rims would suit perfectly to that frame!

The polished stem and bar look fantastic. You have put together a real classic bike, something regardless of age looks great. Well done

I decided to put the stickers on the front wheel and wont complicate anymore about wheels :D
I tried it yesterday with Reynolds DV46 and it doesnt look good. It actully looks better with my wheelset!
